MZB Update 8-24-19


Congratulations on completing our first 2 performances of the season this past week!  We are off to a great start, but now we add in the challenge of school starting and even less rehearsal time each week.  Please keep on top of your preparations!  Here is next week's schedule:

Tuesday - Rehearsal 6-9 PM

Thursday - Rehearsal 6-9 PM

Friday - AWAY football game at Easton ; Report time is 4:00 PM, Truck needed at the band room by 4:15 PM, Chaperones needed at band room by 4:45 PM.

Please review all of what we know so far, and prepare Movement 3 musically for Tuesday.

Apparel and MZB jacket orders are due on FRIDAY, in case you are interested in purchasing any of these items.  A reminder that these are purely OPTIONAL.  Attached are the order forms and info.

Lastly, don't forget that ticket orders for the Philadelphia Phillies Band Night on Monday, September 9 are due on FRIDAY.    A few notes about this event:
  • This is an OPTIONAL activity for members.  We will perform as part of a "mass band" with other schools before the game.  If you wish to participate, you will need to purchase a $15 ticket to the game.  Just put your money (cash or check payable to "WMPA") in an envelope labeled with your name and Phillies Band Night on it, and give it to Mr. Tanzos at rehearsal.
  • We also use this event as a fundraiser -- attached is a ticket order form (Phillies Tickets).  Families and friends can purchase a ticket to the game from us for $30 each.  HALF of every ticket we sell goes directly to the WMPA!  ANYONE can purchase a ticket -- so please spread the word and try to sell some tickets to whoever may wish to go to the game.
  • We will be in need of at least 3 parent chaperones for the event.  Chaperones will need to purchase a $30 ticket, be able to be at the school by 2:00 PM the day of the game, and have all proper clearances on file with the district.  If you are interested in chaperoning, please e-mail me -- I will take the first 3 eligible parents.  
  • If you plan to participate in the event -- here is the link to the Phillies Band Night page, which has the music for download at the bottom of the page.  Just click on your part and print it out.

Thank you, have a great weekend and first day of school, and see you TUESDAY!
-Mr. Tanzos
